    The photoelectric effect is fundamental in laser-matter interaction. Generally, students are taught by introducing the Einstein’s photoelectric-effect equation. In this paper, we propose to teach the photoelectric effect in a time-resolved perspective. According to the time-dependent perturbation theory, the electron may absorb random photons at any time, and the transitions at different moments interfere each other, resulting in the ultimate photoelectron within the expectation of Einstein’s photoelectric-effect equation. The similarity about the time-resolved photoelectric effect and Feynman path integral is analyzed. Students are suggested to conceive a strategy to observed the double-time-slit interference by using two laser pulses.

    In this paper, lattice vibration of one-dimensional j-atom chain is taken as the theoretical calculation model, and its equations are obtained under the harmonic and the nearest adjacent approximation. By setting j=1, 2, and 3, respectively, the dispersion relations of one-dimensional single atom, two atoms and three atoms chain lattice vibration are derived which are the same as those in the existing textbooks and references. The results have shown that the equations of one-dimensional j-atom chain lattice vibration obtained in this paper are general. Then starting from this set of equations, the influence of typical crystal structure parameters (such as atomic distance, restoring force coefficient, and atomic mass) on the dispersion relations of one-dimensional four atoms chain lattice vibration is analyzed by numerical simulation, which intensifies the impact of related content of lattice vibration in solid-state physics, and provides a certain reference value for the fabrication of band-pass filters in engineering.

    Solving mechanical problems with Lagrangian is a very useful method. In this paper, the motion of free photons in the background of a black hole is solved by means of Lagrangian. After obtaining the four velocities of photons, the allowable motion range of photons with different energies is studied by means of the law of conservation of mechanical energy. Then, according to the inverse problem of kinematics in mechanics, the trajectory of photons is finally obtained.

    Diffraction is an important characteristics of the wave aspect of light, and grating diffraction is an important phenomenon of diffraction. A hemicycle diffraction speckle is found when a light irradiates the edge or the surface of a ruler, however, the mechanism of this phenomenon is still not clear. In this paper, combing theoretical and experimental methods we study the mechanism of the hemicycle diffracted speckle. It is found that the diffracted speckle is hemicycle when the gratinglike structure exists in the edge or the surface of a ruler. Using the standard binary grating model we analyze the diffraction of rulers, and found that the hemicycle diffracted speckle originates from the superposition of multigrating diffraction.

    In this paper, single pendulum method is combined with electromagnetic induction principle in the experiments. A permanent magnetic sphere as the pendulum ball is used and a multiturn coil is placed directly under it. When the pendulum ball moves in simple harmonic motion, magnetic flux in the coil is disturbed and thereby a periodic induced electromotive force is generated. A filter module was used to suppress the noise and the electromotive force signal was collected by an oscilloscope. As a result, the pendulum period could be determined accurately by collecting electromotive force signal. Furthermore, the distance between the coil and pendulum ball was changed in order to evaluate the effect of electromagnetic damping. The measurement was repeated at different distance and the measured period data was found to be independent on the distance configurations. It indicated that electromagnetic damping could be ignored which was in agreement with our semiquantitative analysis. The local gravitational acceleration measured in this paper was good consistent with the reference value.

    Diffusion and phase transition are important elements of basic physics teaching at the undergraduate level. In this paper, we study the diffusion and phase transition of water molecules under an external uniform electric field based on molecular dynamics simulations for bulk water system. In the case of smaller electric field, water molecules exhibit significant angular jump reorientation motions, and the frequency of the rotation shows a non-monotonic increasing-decreasing behavior with the electric field. This anomalous electric field dependence of angular jump reorientation is strongly correlated with the non-monotonicity of the diffusion coefficient of water molecules with electric field. The liquid-solid phase transition of the bulk water system, i.e., electrofreezing phenomenon, was reproduced at stronger electric fields, and the layered stacking pattern of the two ice phases was observed. The direction of this layered stacking pattern is consistent with the direction of the electric field. The molecular simulations provide new insights into the molecular mechanisms of water diffusion and phase transition at the microscopic level, and can be used as a teaching example for students to develop research interests and research practice skills.

     Based on the main existing form of viral in the air being attached to tiny droplets from normal breathing or coughing and sneezing, we mainly consider those droplets’ temporal and space dynamics with radius of 0.05~100μm in calm air. It is found that the drops with radiuses are close to 100μm stay in the air less than 2 seconds, which can carry the virus away up to 0.61m when one cough or sneeze. When the radius is in the range of 1~10μm the floating droplets carrying with virus can survive 3.7 hours in the air. While the droplet’s dimension is close to the viral’s it will be present in calm air for nearly one month, and will also have significant diffusions in the air.

    In this paper, the double heterojunction structure of GaN based blue light emitting diodes is studied by capacitance voltage method (C-V method). The C-V curve of the measured samples is divided into two parts from the change center, and the PN junction types are analyzed respectively. Then, the temperature of the diodes is controlled by liquid nitrogen, the C-V curves at different temperatures and the corresponding impurity concentration distribution curves are obtained, and the influence of temperature on them is analyzed. Finally, the double heterostructure of GaN based blue light emitting diodes is analyzed from the impurity concentration distribution curves at different temperatures. The experimental results have showed that the PN junction type of GaN based double heterojunction blue light diode is abrupt junction on both sides; At different temperatures, the capacitance of the sample increases with the increase of temperature and decreased with the decrease of temperature. The double heterostructure is gradually significant with the decrease of temperature. When T= 98 K, the double heterostructure tends to be ideal.

    In the measurement of sound velocity in water,abnormal phenomenon appears that the magnitude of locally maximum of sound pressure on the receiving transducer increases as the receiver moves away from the emission transducer,which differs from the prediction of ideal model and conflicts with the common sense of attenuation in water.Furthermore,the relationship of the locally maximum pressure and the distance between two transducers depends on the height of water in the tank.To solve the myth above,the superposition of Gaussian beams and the method of image sources are applied.Equipped with the analytic expression of the relationship between the pressure and the distance,numerical simulation reproduces the non-monotonic decreasing as seen in the experiment,thus the speculation that the reflection on the interface of water-air and water-tank contributed to such phenomena is verified.

    Material separation is the core technology of many medical and industrial applications.Traditional solid filtration membranes can allow particles smaller than the critical size to pass through the membrane while blocking the passage of larger particles.However,membranes that allow large particles to pass through while small particles stay are difficult to make artificially.Stogin,Gockowski,et al (in Sci.Adv.2018,4:3276) proved that a liquid membrane composed entirely of liquid can be designed to retain particles smaller than the critical size and permeate largesize particles.Based on the above research,this article analyzes and derives based on the liquid membrane filter model,analyzes and discusses the critical permeability conditions of the liquid membrane,and is verified in the experiment.At the same time,this article realizes the screening of particle velocity by adjusting the surface tension coefficient of the liquid membrane.
